Motorola Xoom brings iPad competition - TiPb at CES 2011

Our good friend Phil over at AndroidCentral managed to capture a video showing off the Motorola Xoom tablet at CES. The Motorola Xoom could bring some real competition to not only the iPad but the iPad 2 as well. Packing a dual core 1Ghz processor, 10.1-inch (1280 x 800 and 16:10 aspect ratio) display, 2-mega-pixel front facing camera, 5-mega-pixel rear facing camera, microSD slot, HDMI out and a whopping 1024Mb of RAM.

The Xoom will run Android Honeycomb and supports Adobe Flash. Availability is said to be first quarter of this year and exclusive to Verizon. No details on pricing yet.

Strangely, LTE won't come immediately and will require a *

Apple denying retail store vacation time for CDMA Verizon iPhone launch?

Apple denying retail store vacation time for CDMA Verizon iPhone launch?

Apple has issued a vacation time blackout period from the last week of January to the middle of February where retail employees without seniority won't be able to take time off, presumably to ensure employee coverage for the first major product launch of 2011. Could this be in preparation for a Verizon iPhone launch?

Apple is quietly prohibiting vacation days for some retail employees for three weeks beginning later this month, a move that could foreshadow a significant product introduction in the coming weeks.

Corning Gorilla Glass demo - TiPb at CES 2011

Chances are, even if it's not been confirmed and Corning is not allowed to disclose it, your phone or tablet device might just have a super tough Gorilla Glass screen. Ahem. So how tough is it?

(And as anyone who's ever dropped their iPhone or iPad knows, your heart breaks along with the glass.)

Apple iPad vs. BlackBerry PlayBook hands on - CES 2011

Apple iPad vs. BlackBerry PlayBook hands on - CES 2011

Our good friend CrackBerry Kevin got to go hands-on and do a full BlackBerry Playbook review today -- including a one-on-one with Apple's iPad -- and I got dragged along as camera guy.

The PlayBook looked very good. Much more responsive and fluid than the Galaxy Tabs I've tried (that will likely change come Honeycomb on the Droid Pad) and while it wasn't finished hardware or software yet, it certainly looks like it's living up to RIM's ambitions. Developer support/platform momentum, future form factors (RIM has one of every phone type, could there be bigger tablets, keyboard sliders, who knows?), how it will play beyond the BlackBerry base, and what the tablet market will look like when iPad 2 hits are all questions that remain to be answered. But for today, kudos to RIM for a slick, smooth UI and really nice looking hardware.

Kevin's iPad vs. Playbook video after the break. Check out CrackBerry.com for the full Blackberry PlayBook review including RIM's walkthrough video, Kevin's impressions, and a ton more photos. Then race back here and tell us what you think, is the BlackBerry PlayBook going to make a dent in Apple's iPad 2 plans?

Why AT&T won't be releasing an LTE iPhone 4G this year either...

Why AT&T won't be releasing an LTE iPhone 4G this year either...

AT&T isn't getting an LTE iPhone 4G any time soon but they are launching 4G, in fact -- look up, look down -- they just did! Actually, what they did was call HSPA+ "4G" because it goes faster than regular old HSPA 3G and because T-Mobile is already doing that and Sprint is calling WiMax "4G", and Verizon is calling early LTE "4G", so why not? And when real LTE 4G comes out, that could be called 4G as well (though I bet they'll call it 5G to have even more Gs, because that's better, right?)

iPhone 5 or CDMA iPhone casing leaked?

iPhone 5 or CDMA iPhone casing leaked?

Pictures have leaked out of a newly designed casing for what could be iPhone 5, the CDMA version of iPhone 4, or just a reworked casing for iPhone 4. If -- big if -- these are real the main difference appears on the sides of the case when it comes to the antenna bands -- there are four black separators in these photos as opposed to three on the current iPhone 4.

You will notice in pictures below that the band on the lower left of the phone that caused all the attenuation issues remains but there is a new black band above the mute rocker and also the black band is no longer on the top of the phone and appears to have been moved to the top of the right hand side of the phone.

Check out the pictures and a video after the break and let us know what you think -- real, fake, or antennagate?

iPad 2 case pops up at CES boasting a mock iPad 2

iPad 2 case pops up at CES boasting a mock iPad 2

Looks like Engadget has discovered a mockup iPad 2 case at CES. The screen above also seems to contain a mock iPad 2 as well. As the iPad 2 announcement grows even closer, the normal mockups and leaks are ramping up. This case seems to fit in line with most of the others. It has camera cutouts in the front and back and a much larger speaker cut-out.

This case and mockup comes from Dexim. Besides having the mythical iPad 2 mockup, it looks like a pretty neat case concept in itself with a pretty ingenious design for a Bluetooth keyboard. It also confirms what all the rest have when it comes to size. The iPad 2 will most likely be slimmer than the current generation.

TiPb Asks: What iPhone or iPad accessory do you want to see most in 2011?

What iPhone or iPad accessory do you most want in 2011? Rene is off covering CES 2011 and while I admit some of the things we've seen so far especially the medical accessories like heart and blood pressure monitors are super sweet (and I want them!) it's been almost 2 years since Apple opened up iOS 3 (iPhone 3.0) to accessories and there's just got to be more coming, right?
